Another whirlwind Melbourne International Comedy Festival has just finished. It’s a strange mix of old and new for me – much of the work is routine, although high-pressure and with very tight deadlines, but every year there are new challenges, new venues to explore and new artists to discover. My role is to take the new branding (this year’s colours were purple and yellow) and apply it through signage, digital and printed posters, programs for special events, press ads, staff t-shirts, backlits and online imagery. I also pitch in with some design work for some of the international artists, and produce Daily Diary posters for every day of the festival.

This year was extra fun as even more of my family were drawn into the whirlpool – my partner is now the festival’s technical director, my eldest son is in his second year working front-of-house, and three other gorgeous young people in my family’s inner circle were also involved: one on the Town Hall steps, one as a technical stage manager, and one performing at the Arts Centre.

It’s an absolute privilege to be part of the team that delivers this brilliant festival to the people of Melbourne every year.
